possibility of a civil war in ukraine and that borders russia. towns were overrun by armed separatists who believe those towns should be russians. this is happening not on the border but more than 150 miles into ukraine. it's after midnight in ukraine now. government leaders are promising that active military operations will continue when the sun comes up. dozens of civilians and separatists have been killed in the fighting so far and people who live in the region are being told to stay in their homes for safety. as i said a minute ago a team of military monitors from the osce was taken hostage more than a week ago but they are now free. they were held against their will by ukrainian separatists who are trying to take over their cities and their towns. on the phone with me now is michael bossercue. a spokesman for the organization of safety and cooperation in europe. thank you for joining us. the condition of your colleagues who were released today, were any of them hurt? >> hi don. thank you for asking. of course, we are delighted that they are free and they are fine. they are actually on

people were hurt yesterday. russia's president vladimir putin is blaming the surge in violence on ukraine and the west as well. it's putting new pressure on the white house to find a way to force russia to withdraw. nbc's kristen welker is live for us at the white house with more this afternoon. kristen, first of all, what are president obama's options here? >> well, he doesn't have a whole lot of options, craig. the president has been quite clear that a military option is off the table. so right now the u.s. and its european partners are focusing on sanctions. they have so far implemented several rounds of sanctions, which have largely been targeted at individuals. on friday, president obama met with german chancellor angela merkel here at the white house, and the two made a pretty big announcement, which is that they had agreed to move forward with sectorial sanctions, if the crisis in ukraine worsens after the may 25th election. so i don't anticipate that we'll see any new sanctions prior to that. then a final decision will be based on what is actually happening in ukraine. this is sig

as president obama and german chancellor angela merkel met at the white house. the two leaders warned russia they are prepared to impose more sanctions. >> the goal is not to punish russia. the goal is to give them an incentive to choose the better horse, and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically -- a better course, and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically. and i think we are united on that front. >> they set a may 25 trigger date for economic sanctions, but will be sanctions stop putin's ambitions? joining me, a director of russian studies at the kanin institute. >>l this stop? we have tried times with sanctions. it does not seem to be helping much. >> putin has certain geo- political objectives. these sanctions will hurts. they will hurts going forward. in terms of the short-term to strategic objectives, he is not going to be deterred -- >> when you talk about his objectives, what are we talking about? does he want all of ukraine? just to cooler areas? wants allt think he of ukraine. if he wanted to invade ukraine, he could've done earlier. his main objective is to under
is that this meeting was called by the russians, and it's pretty clear to me that now with russia being attacked by many countries around the world, russia seems to have a pretty consistent diplomatic strategy and that is attack is the best form of defense. hence they called this meeting, pa the russian ambassador who said it was ukraine that was violating the agreement reached in geneva in april. >> the white house is now insulted by our appeal to the kiev government to withdraw forces. before washington had requested elected president victor jankovic to not use force against its people. it's very strange logic that now force can be used against civilians. >> reporter: and he went on to say that he wanted his western colleagues to think twice about their policies. >>> president barack obama has met his german counterpart in washington, d.c. today. >> if we see the destabilization continuing so severely that impedes elections on may 25th, we will not have a choice but to move forward with additional, more severe sanctions, and the consultations have been taking place over the course of the last
on this issue. you have spoken out forcefully against russia oppose the illegal actions in ukraine and you have been a leader in the european union as well as indispensable partner in the g7, and your presence here today is a reminder that our nation stand united. we are united in our determination to impose costs on russia for its actions, including through coordinated sanctions. we are united on our unwavering article five commitment to the security of our nato allies, including german aircraft joining nato patrols over the balkans. we are united in our support for ukraine, including be very important imf program approved this week to help ukraine stabilize and reform its economy. to as ukrainian forces moved restore order in eastern ukraine, it is obvious to the world that these russian-backed groups are not peaceful protesters. they are heavily armed militants who are receiving significant support from russia. the ukrainian government has the right and responsibility to uphold law and order within its territory, and russia needs to use its influence over these paramilitary groups so they pr
the extraction forces, rescue forces killed as well because in a russia to do something, you rush to failure. that's a cardinal rule in the military you don't make that kind of mistake. you soberly, quickly and as rapidly as possible address the situation but don't just run over the top of the heal because something. killed. >> mark and antonio, if you listen closely alleges later to lovell's own testimony upon interrogation by congressman colley, he said something -- conley when he was different, said given the resources we had at the time, could we have stopped this? no. no. >> that's sort of one of the three key questions in all of this, i think. a, was there adequate security at that place? b, given the resources, could we have stopped it and, 3, had we, the white house, been lying? i think it's the concenof fire mind would folks there was insufficient security but there was, you know, no trail of desseat, no cover-up and given the minimal resources they could not have stopped this the minimal resources they could not have stopped this. >> let's talk to jay -- listen to jay carney talkin
postured now what to put on the table and how to try to coax russia back with the on ramp that gets it back into the civil, the world of civilized nations, and merkel is resonant to look at that economy. >> well, germany gets a third of the natural gas from rush sharks and 350,000 german workers depend on russian trade, and the difficu difficulty is that what are the chances that the europeans and the german s wis will make the ongoing sectorial sanctions? >> well, the dilemma is that the white house is going to make the going after putin and the cronies and the institutions with them to affect the course of the nation that i think that is, it is in the midst of a natural greatness campaign and wanting to feel a restoration of the pride and dignify in the world, and if you want to sanction the individuals, that is not going to necessarily give you the correction of the courses, and it is sort of like if you have the u.s. trying to sanction david koch and george soro soros, and hoping that the united states would go a different direction and many people have said that unless the sanctions ar
. it should not be something that an outside nation dictates to ukraine and that is certainly what russia has demonstrated that it's trying to do. >> reporter: leaders in ukraine and the west are trying to avoid a repeat of what happened in crimea after the fall of pro-moscow president viktor yanukovych. voters there held a referendum in march, and decided to join russia. then, president vladimir putin annexed the republic. he's accused of sending in arms and agents to fuel the unrest so he could eventually send in troops under the pretense of protecting ethnic russians. putin and members of his administration have denied that again and again. he said in a statement that ukraine must withdraw all military units from the southeast, stop the violence, and immediately start a national dialogue that would involve all regions and all political forces. ukrainian soldiers have been manning checkpoints on the outskirts of the occupied area. but in the capital, they held an exercise to test the response to a threat on a government building. the head of the state guard said they performed a task well.
this morning that u.s. sanctions over ukraine are having a limited impact on russia as vladimir putin demand troops withdraw from part of the country. the russian ruble and stock market are actually stronger now than they were before the first wave of u.s. sanctions were announced. >> that's not really the idea. >> meanwhile, an operation is underway in eastern ukraine to reclaim the city controlled by pro-russian militants. gunfire and explosions could be heard as ukrainian forces claim they regained control of at least nine check points. the militants shot down two military helicopters. at least three people have been killed including a ukrainian pilot. separatists loyal to moscow are building barricades in an attempt to keep ukrainian forces away. it has been a violent week in the region with pro-russian militants seizing control of government buildings. yesterday the men overpowered to storm a building. they are fighting. >> they are fighting. you know it's not a good sign when vladimir putin tells you to withdraw troops from your own country. and the sanctions are having unfortunately l
federation has a monopoly of information within russia so it's harder for the truth to get back into russia. but it's not hard to get into ukraine. pretty much everyone in ukraine understands what's happening. as you said earlier, this is not a matter of whether the russians will invade ukraine. ukraine. >> what is putin's goal to create chaos, to make the elections a failure or is he trying to execute this putin doctrine of intervening wherever he thinks ethnic russians are threatened and create a new russian block endowmented by russia? >> all of the above. the first two things you mentioned, as you know and your viewers know there is a very important election coming up on the 25th may that is supposed to give all of the citizens of the supposedly independent sovereign state of ukraine a chance to elect a government to replace the extraordinarily corrupt and brutal regime that was really -- doesn't even deserve to be called a government at the end, of former president yanukovych. and what putin is trying to do is make sure that doesn't happen. that he can disrupt enough of the ukraine geo
% aimed at russia. all the other participants in this program are the very countries that russia threatens right now. particularly ukraine which is the second largest participant. i think it would be a really bad signal for this country to actually cut programs that are supportive of democracy in the areas immediately around russia. frankly i think more or less plays into putin's hand. beyond that we have a unique institution, unique arrangement and unique person heading it at the library of congress, who is probably the country's -- is the country's, probably the world's foremost expert on russian history and culture and literature. this has been well placed as long as he's been the librarian and well used. again i appreciate my friend's motives, but i would urge the rejection of the amendment. with that i would like to yield the remainder of the time that i have to my good friend, the gentleman from virginia. the chair: the gentleman from virginia is recognized. >> coy not agree mr. moran: i cannot agree more with my friend from oklahoma, the chair of this subcommittee. and the idea that
on foreign policy. the new sanctions on russia, do you have any indication that they are having an effect. >> it's too soon to tell, but the president has been very deliberate, very measured. we've had a lot of engagement with our business community here, engaging their reaction to our sanctions and so far we have had their full support as well as, of course, importantly the support of our allies in the g- 7. >> want to ask you about an issue that has gripped america this week the nba scandal. do you think a $2.5 million fine and bap for life for donald sterling is punishment enough for what he said? >> well look, we support his decision. it's up to the nba and adam silver did a swift and thorough investigation and he reached a conclusion and we support his conclusion. >> do you think your fellow chicagoan oprah winfrey should bid for the clippers? >> i heard about that. i was excited to hear she was interested. seems to be a lot of buzz going on about that. >> sounds like you support the idea of him no longer owning the team though. >> i support the decision of adam silverman. i think wh
at the ethnic minty that says the government limits their religion and culture. >> russia's military attache detained in kiev as a spy for moscow. the government is helpless against militias taking away government buildings. the military is on full alert for a possible russian invasion. we are in donetsk, eastern ukraine. what can you tell us about the expulsion of this military attache? >> we don't have much details except for what the interim government said in kiev, that he had gone beyond his mandate as a diplomat in this country and carried out duties that looked more like espionage rather than diplomacy. he has been expelled but no deadline given to leave the country. we don't knee if he is still here or actually left. nor have we heard comments from moscow. >> officials said they believe some of the militants in the east are being coordinated and funded by moscow he. are you seeing changes on the ground where you are in donetsk that would suggest a full scale invasion by russian forces is possible or imminent? >> well, the changes we're seeing on the ground are that more and more buil
-- that russia has taken kiev for sea power - natural resources of the sea. as an american, what are we lacking in terms of natural resources? guest: i don't understand the premise of the question. as far as natural resources, the united states is not lacking anything. we have the potential to almost be self-sufficient in resources. the economy is growing today primarily because of energy development on state and private lands. if we were to actually use energy resources on public lands, we could sustain that growth and not have a roller coaster of boom and bust. we have the resources in the united states. areust need to make sure we developing those resources in every form, not just carbon-based fuels. host: here are a couple of tweets -- guest: amen. and there are some perfect examples. we have an area outside of utah which was blm land that they did easter break,one and almost broke into her right down a. finally, they contracted with the county to manage that area in the county now manages it and maximize profit and is one of the premier recreation areas we have in the state of utah if not
the arrest. >> russia has nothing to do with this. there are units suggesting that our instructors are there. i declare: there are neither russian instructors nor special units nor troops there. >> and putin is threatening to retaliate against western sacks saying there will -- sanction -- sanctions. two cares? apparently not americans. registered voters across party lines want the u.s. to be less active on the world stage. joining us now from washington, d.c. is strobe talbot, president of the brookings institution served in the clinton administration from 1993 to 2001. for the new independent states of the former soviet union. pro-russian forces, are taking over, president putin denies involvement just as he did in crimea. for all practical purposes you are saying he has already invaded ukraine? >> he certainly has. these are not just pro-russian forces, these are pro-russian forces that are highly inif i recall traited by russian forces. what we are hearing from president putin is another stunning case of the big lie that we can remember from decades ago, which is now front and center. e
sanctions in place against russia no end is in sight. are these sanctions really working? we'll talk about that next. and it feels like your lifeate revolves around your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira adalimumab. humira has been proven to work for adults who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief, and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not s
. at the same time we see a country whose greatest threat to that occurring is russia, a country that as we know, illegally went into crimea and annexed it, a country that today has 40,000 troops on the border, a country that has black ops operators inside eastern ukraine, the industrial part of ukraine, that it hopes over time to in essence become a part of what they're doing in russia. we see every day the destabilization occurring and we know the most important next step in ukraine is for them to go to this may 25 election and have an election the world community believes was a valid election. and yet we know daily putin and russia does everything it can to destabilize ukraine and to delegitimize this process of elections and moving forward. so, mr. president, a number of us, out of grave concern for what is happening, out of concern about where this is going to lead america, where this is going to lead europe, have come together to write a piece of legislation because what we've seen from the administration is a lot of rhetoric. unfortunately, mr. president, what we see is an administration
are standing, are sanctions impacting russia or its supporters in eastern ukraine? >> that's a very difficult question to ask. you'd have to say the ultimate intention of these sanctions is to prevent a russian invasion of eastern ukraine and if that invasion does not happen, was it due to the sanctioners not. i suspect we might be arguing about that for months or years to come, but as rewards the conduct of pro russian groups in the east, they don't seem deterred at all, quite the contrary. they seem more emboldened on each day, going very much on the offensive, they are on the front, sanctions or not. >> barnaby phillips for us in donetsk in eastern you a crane, thank you. >> parliamentary elections, first time they have headed to the polls since the u.s. pulled out in 2011. there are reports of attacks outside the capitol. we are at a polling side in baghdad. how has the turnout been so far where you are? >> this polling station in central baghdad, they are voting just through those doors, has about 3,500 registered voters, about 1,000 people have turned up so far. now what an independent

more sanctions against russia for what the white house described as russia's continued illegal intervention and provocative actions in ukraine. this is the third escalation of not war tactics, sanctions against russia over the issue of ukraine. among the seven russian officials targeted today is this guy, the man here in close quarters with president vladimir putin, a former deputy prime minister to mr. putin and he now heads up the russian state-owned oil company, the biggest oil company in the world. if president obama does ramp up sanctions even further, the most aggressive option that he's got is to take actions not just against individuals, but against the whole russian oil and gas sector, which accounts for more than half of that country's economy. so far president obama has not done that, but as of today he has targeted that guy. he has targeted the head of russia's oil company. he's targeted him personally as an individual. even while the american company exxon continues to announce yet further partnerships with that same russian company, whose chief executive has just

not declined the cla im. the u.s. has announced new sanctions on russia and the continued standoff over the crisis in ukraine. speaking today in manila, president obama said he would expand the list targeting russian individuals and firms with financial and diplomatic penalties. >> russia has not yet chosen to move forward. the sanctions represent the next stage in a calibrated effort to change their behavior. we do not yet know whether it will work. ift is why the next phase, we saw further russian aggression toward ukraine -- could be sectoral sanctions. targeted and addressing sectors like banking or the defense industries. >> tensions in ukraine remain high with continued violence. pro-russian separatist seized a group of monitors for the security and cooperation group. want toratists say they trade the monitors for a group of their jailed activists. meanwhile, the mayor of ukraine's second-largest city has been seriously wounded in a shooting. doctors say the mayor is fighting for his life. about 200 girls remain missing nearly two weeks after they were kidnapped from their boardin
. thethe g-7 group has met to impe more sanctions on russia over the weekend. i have a list of the sanctions in front of me. you've had a chance to take a quick look at it. anything surprising to you? >> absolutely nothing surprising at all. it's exactly what we expected. just to run through it quickly, this has been breaking the last few minutes, david. the seven names of prominent russians two of these are close associates of vladimir putin. we understand one of them is the boss of rosnaft the state oil company, and the head of rostec, whose name i don't have, will suffer freezes. the u.s. is banning somewhat high-tech items that could contribute to the russian military structure. these will be ban for sale, export to russia. the key line to all of this because it is the same underlining the conclusion that the e.u. members have come up with, there will be more sanctions threatening key sectors of energy defense and finance if there are any further moves against the ukraine by russia and those 40,000 troops on the border. so no surprises there. we also have got a statement
is bigger than france, it's bigger than russia. i am confident that we will defeat germany to $4 trillion. 16 million people work in it. seven out of the 10 smartest kids in the high school graduating class work and our health care system somewhere. so when people in washington bravely talk about reforming the health care system, the degrees of difficulty or its magnitude, this is way harder than iraq. is like invading a country the size of germany, and i think that's a little bit what is happening now. the main feature of this health economy for most of the last five years has been disinflation. frankly, something no one, including the futurists predicted, in 2009 our health system arrived at a rate of increase in health spending that we haven't seen in this country since dwight eisenhower was president of the united states. five years before medicare, and we stayed at that level of maybe 3.8, 3.9% increase in spending for five long years. the economists who believe this was a product of the recession will have trouble explaining why per capita medicare spending has trended down towards
